Coucou

Coucou is one of 16 designs in  Åsa Tricosa Ziggurats: 16 elegantly seamless knits


(available from Purlescence & other stockists)

Coucou is an adorable, slightly flared Ziggurat, featuring a contrasting cable neckline, a tuck, and a dainty pocket.

Sleeves are three-quarter length and finished with a contrasting cable like the one framing the neck.

There are various options for the tuck: a two-coloured triangle tuck for intrepid knitters; a plain tuck for those who are less adventurous; and a more easily accomplished gather.

Coucou is knitted with Suilven from Ripples Crafts. Another magic yarn blend, Suilven has wonderful lustre and drape, the kind of drape that neither clings nor loses its shape. Perfect for the little tuck at centre back.
The sample in size 36 is knitted without bust darts.
